Malaysian in Tokyo. Welcome to my happy space!

welcome to my blog


being a mommy
working life

of intervention.

As of this week, it just hit me that I've been employed for 3 months already.

Time flies fast is the understatement of the century.

I didn't think I'd get through these past months without much breakdowns and complaints. Well, yes, I've had my fair share of those (just ask him) and there are times when I thought, all I wanted in life is go home and lie in bed all day watching TV without having to worry about production yield or defects root cause or simulation or anything.

And that's when reality kicks my ass real hard.

And that's when I'm thinking of studying again.

Studying was probably the most hated thing in my life; and yet the times I've spent doing it was the most fun I've ever had. I've learned that I found Maths very fascinating; I've always loved Add Maths (as geeky as I can possibly sound, I know) that I could spend the entire day blasting off my speaker listening to music while doing questions in Algebra book. I've learned that I loved drawing chemical bonds till I ran out of papers. I've learned that I have a love-hate relationship with CAD; doing it for almost 12 hours non-stop was a torture but secretly when it's complete, I would look at the drawings and smile.

All those times when I reached home and it's already dark and I skipped meals and went to sleep. All those times when I took a nap till Isyak and woke up feeling all grumpy for missing those few hours to do homework. When final terms came and I've finished all papers and went home with that "OMG NO MORE PAPERSS" amazing feeling in my tummy.

I miss being a student. There's no other way to put it.

For now, I think I'm blessed not having to drag myself to work every weekend. For now, I think it's great that I'm surrounded with positive people who'd cheer up my most sucky day without them even knowing it.

For now, passing by the same beach by the highway on the way to office every morning and watching the sun rise are probably the highlights of my day.

But that feeling of having reality kicks again; oh boy.

I really don't like intervention.


  1. I feel you honey! Luckily on my side, I felt that the first 3 months of working was the best ever time in my life. I'm in the engineering trainee programme so we actually got not much work to do apart from overseeing the other engineers do work. Alhamdulillah it has been a year, and I guess working is very exciting and adventurous too. Keep it up girl! :)

  2. Aida, I wish we had that program here! Honestly, when we started I thought I could catch up..but there are a LOT of things to learn in a pace of 3 months. I'd prefer observing other engineers before actually taking over the work -__- But what to do. Anyway it's nice to know someone's enjoying their work ;) thanks, you too!
